Different looking 750

Anybody familiar with this bike? It is/was from Ft. Lauderdale FL.



Can you spot the tail/brake light?

I haven't seen this one, and I'm from that area. Of course, Ft. Lauderdale is a BIG place, and there's lot's of cycles on the road, so I might never have seen it anyway.

Can't find the tail lights... Where did you get the pics?

Geez, I dunno, looks nice, but its got too much stuff on it

I'd like to see more of it

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some

I don't actually know where the rear lights are, I probably should have typed it differently. I asked it because I couldn't see any, and was hoping somebody might point them out.

I like the color of the tank and fenders myself, and it'd be nice to check it out in person too...

The headlight looks to be pointing pretty high, and no sign of a licence plate.
I don't think it's finished, so the tail lights probably aren't mounted yet.
